Nearly six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, the largest extermination campaign ever organised. It is perhaps the darkest page in human history. There have been prophetic references to a number of six million Jews in peril or in danger of being exterminated long before World War II started. In hindsight, those references are eerie.
There is a plan for the future
There have been other prophetic coincidences in history. For instance, the licence plate number of Franz Ferdinand’s car at the time of his assassination referred to the end date of World War I. This is remarkable because this even triggered World War I. Perhaps, history unfolds according to a script.
The following claims have been made before World War II:
- Six million Jews in Russia were suffering from oppression before World War I
- Six million Jews in Europe were suffering from World War I
- Jews and Zionists feared a Holocaust of Jews
- Russia was planning to exterminate six million Jews
- Six million Jews were threatened with extermination
- The Nazis were planning to exterminate six million Jews
The six million figure first emerged in Jewish media because it was the number of Jews living in Russia before World War I. The Jews in Russia suffered from pogroms and a hostile government. The number kept on circulating since then, which is remarkable as the number of Jews that died during the Holocaust was close to six million.
This page is based on materials found on the website Zioncrimefactory.com. The editor appears to believe that the Holocaust (or at the very least, the six million figure) is ‘a hoax planted by Zionist propaganda’. Zioncrimefactory may have used a biased selection of evidence. Perhaps other numbers were circulating. If several numbers were circulating in a similar frequency, which appears not to be the case, this coincidence may not be as remarkable as it seems, based on the information presented here.
1901. Rabbi Wise’s address

1906. Dr. Paul Nathan mentions the extermination of 6,000,000 Jews

Dr. Nathan read to the meeting a circular addressed to the garrisson of Odessa calling upon the soldiers to rise and crush the traitors who are plotting to upset the government of the Czar and to subsitute it for a Jewish empire.
This is great material for anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists who can point at the number of high-ranking Jewish Bolshevik revolutionaries in the Communist Revolution of 1917 and claim that Jewish bankers have been operating behind the scene to make the Communist Revolution succeed.
